Celtic Will Need To Battle It Out With Other Teams In England If They Wish To Land West Brom’s Burke.

Celtic are in talks with West Brom over possibly making Burke a permanent Celtic player, but other teams in England are interested as well.

Crystal Palace are the latest team to be taking an interest in West Brom youngster Oliver Burke. 

The 21-year-old forward is currently enjoying a decent spell of form on loan at Celtic and with his Albion future looking uncertain, he is on thee radar of a number of clubs.

Celtic want to keep the youngster but would face serious competition to land him on a permanent contract.

And the Daily Mail report  Palace  ’s Scottish director of football Dougie Freedman is a big admirer of the Scotland star who is on international duty in Kazakhstan.

Burke cost West Brom £14million from RB Leipzig last summer but has yet to break through at the Hawthorns.

He was sent north in the January transfer window to Celtic where he has netted five times in 14 appearances.

Burke has a contract for another three years at West Brom but reportedly does not have a future there and the club are willing to listen to offers.
